    If this is true, it looks like BMW's modular engine platform has a working ECU tuning option for the MG1 found in the B48/B58 vehicles and F90 M5. The post from K8 Strasse says it could take as much as 8 hours to flash(first flash), depending on what is being changed. While that is definitely not an optimal situation, at least a bench flash is not required. I suppose a battery charger will be recommended ;)

    Here is a Google Translation:
    They have an order page up which directs to their contact information:

    I'm curious if the flash still needs done by an authorized dealer, or if they intend to handle things through an android/iOS app and a server side process of some kind?

    Maybe they slow the flash time down to 8hr to justify their $2,759 price tag? :hushed:

    They emailed me back pretty fast when I asked for details on the flash (b58)

    "Hello, on current moment only Stage 1 for full stock hardware. Anyway, no problem for stage 2 and stage 3, about fuel system, after 420-430 hp need upgrade fuel pump or use methanol injection.About dynographs and racelogic results, follow our instagram, we will post this soon."

    They got back to me on a few details:

    Currently, the flashing must be done in Moscow, but they will expand to authorized dealers. To become a dealer, you'll need to bind the flashing tool to their master server. You'll also need a web and social media presence and at least a year of tuning experience and must order 24 files per year.

    From them, you'll get dealer pricing for the tuning files and various options, full support and a file preparation time of 30 mins to 3 hours, depending on the task complexity.

    This is an OBD flash, Android/iOS options are not currently planned and have not been ruled out, this will be determined based on demand.
